A woman was arrested in Fairfax City, Virginia, in connection to a house fire in a Silver Spring, Maryland, retirement community last week.
Marcelina Esther Bowman, 55, was arrested Friday. She faces multiple charges, including first-degree arson and reckless endangerment, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman Pete Piringer.
One person in the one-story duplex, located in the 14690 block of Edelmar Drive in the Leisure World community, was taken to a hospital for injuries that Piringer said were not life-threatening.
The fire, which started in a bedroom and spread to the attic, caused $350,000 in damages.
Bowman was held in Fairfax pending extradition to Montgomery County.
